A ballot of tenants in the controversial proposal to transfer
Glasgow council’s housing stock to a new owner is planned to
take place on 4 March, deputy minister for social justice Margaret
Curran has announced.
The revised business plan of the proposed new stock owners,
Glasgow Housing Association (GHA), will be presented to Glasgow
council on 31 January. If approval is given, the council will then
seek permission from the Scottish executive to ballot all 80,000
tenants, who will have the final say in the proposed transfer of
the city’s £4 billion housing stock.
Should the programme proceed as planned, the result of the
ballot will be announced on 25 March 2002.
